Hatha & Yin yoga combined with Tantra Mindfulness practices

In August we invite you to our internationally certified 200 hours teacher training which combines traditional Hatha yoga and Tantric teachings, enabling you to become a professional yoga teacher. Our unique teaching program has a special focus on Yin Fascial Yoga and Mindfulness, which allows for a balanced and integrated practice. You spend four weeks surrounded by the beautiful nature of Awakeland between the mountains and the sea to fully embody a deep understanding of the Yoga and Tantra philosophy and practice. Yin Fascial Yoga is based on the teachings of traditional Yin Yoga, in which the main focus is on removing emotional and physical residual tension stored in the Myofascial tissues. The combination of the powerful techniques of Yin yoga, Myofascial Release, Daoism and Mindfulness is an invitation to come back to the felt sense and what it is to be truly in the body! Our team of four experienced yoga teachers will create a well-rounded and holistic training which enables you to step forward as a confident and versatile yoga teacher.

The training includes lots of free time to enjoy the marvelous Algarve nature, either hiking in the Monchique mountains, relaxing at one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, enjoying the sights and cultural life of the old cities of the Algarve or surfing in fabulous conditions on Portugal’s famed west coast a mere 20 min drive away.
